LADY BIRD — Yet Another Gasp of Mumblecore


Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird," starring Saoirse Ronan (pronounced Ser-Sha, as in Sersha, Sersha, Sersha) finds Gerwig going all semi-autobiographical mumblecore, as if that Godforsaken genre weren't already long dead gone. Let's just say this looks to be an ideal movie for entitled white girls to get all touchy feely over while hiding in blind spots to the rest of society. Yes, yes, yes, here is yet another me, me, me movie that will probably be every bit annoying as "Tiny Furniture." Blech. I feel dirty for even having watched the trailer. Search it out if you must in the upcoming New York Film Festival —September 28 through October 15.
